Episode 209 - 3 Scientific Reasons People Think They See Ghosts

Recommended Posts

Whether it's ghosts or the afterlife or god, most humans tend to lean towards thinking something funky and unknowable is out there, even if they can't pinpoint what it is or prove that it exists.

 

With ghosts, this seems to be especially true. In some states, real estate listings must disclose if people have died at the property, you know, in case ghosts, and even the most fervent atheists will admit, "yeah there's something weird opening doors in my house, it's definitely a ghost."

 

On this week's episode, Alex Schmidt is joined by Dana Gould, creator of IFC's Stan Against Evil for a wide-ranging conversation about why humanity is obsessed with the supernatural and some of the scientific reasons our bodies trick us into believing that ghosts are real.
